Course Syllabus




Our courses are designed to help you learn programming skills through practice. Here are the practical projects you'll complete with the help of a mentor as part of this course:



SECTION 1

Welcome to Computing

We'll dive into the history of computers and explore why they came about, how we design them and how we can communicate with them through the art of programming and logic.

SECTION 2

Thinking Like a Robot

Learn how to think in a way that lets you convert your ideas into programming reality. Put your thoughts into algorithms and code to accomplish complex tasks using Delphi in a breeze - it's not far from what we do every day already.

Why Take This Course?



Computer science isn’t only for those that want to be programmers. This course teaches you how to think logically, through powerful methods like decomposition and abstraction. It develops problem solving skills that you can apply outside of the context of technology. You also learn the valuable skill of programming, which is becoming more important in the technological economy we’re in.

As much as non-technical people can benefit from this course, this doesn’t diminish its value to aspiring computer scientists. You will be challenged, and learn the fundamentals on which your future studies will be grounded in. A vital course to take.
